Baum Cycles builds the finest custom performance road bicycles in the world out of steel and titanium in Geelong, Australia. Baum's hallmarks are a fanatical attention to detail, extremely personal geometry/frame construction, and second-to-none paint quality.
Born in Boulder, Colorado, Mosaic Cycles is a pinnacle of American handbuilt steel and titanium. Their range of custom, purpose-built racing machines are both incredibly finished and attainable, a testament to the sustainability of domestic framebuilding.
Conceived in a red barn in Wisconsin, Trek Bicycles has grown into one of the world’s leading carbon composite engineering houses, beyond even the cycling industry. Designing the most advanced production carbon bikes available entirely in-house, Trek has quietly honed that cutting edge into US-built road racing bikes without peer. Their innovative Project One custom paint program adds exquisite form to a mountain of function: Jaw-dropping speed never looked so good.
Pegoretti and framebuilding are two words nearly synonymous with each other. The legendary Italian builder has built more Grand Tour-winning bikes than anyone else, and his philosophies on fit and geometry can be found in many production bikes, some 40 years after he began his craft. Currently working exclusively in Columbus steel, Dario Pegoretti's bikes are thoroughbred race bikes, works of art, and true heirloom pieces.
Open Cycle is the brainchild of two industry stalwarts, former BMC general manager Andy Kessler and Cervélo co-founder Gerard Vroomen. Born out of a desire to simplify, Open's disruptive designs continue to shift perceptions on what bikes are capable of and where they can take the rider, with the award-winning UP setting the bar to which all other "mixed-surface" bikes are measured.
One of Italy's last great free-standing bicycle companies, Treviso-based Pinarello is the epitome of Italian panache. The legendary Dogma has won the last four of five Tours de France with Team Sky, reinforcing Pinarello's standing as one of the first names in professional cycling.
